    I geuss everyone missed my point. I was asking for proper show attire. I have a bit that works, I just didn't know if it was correct for show.

    Thanks anyway.

    I just went back and re-read the OP. Not a whole lot on show attire, there!

    In Western Riding the preferred method would be one-handed. That's the way a cowboy would have ridden, so that he one hand free to work his rope or any other tool he needed to use from horseback.

    As to "Show Attire" just what kind of show are we looking at? What type of classes will be entered? At what level are you showing (a "Saturday Night Horseshow" or a regional or national show)? Some shows are sticklers for the Rules and some are not.

    It is a district Arab show that is open to all breeds. It's very low key and a perfect show for green horses and riders. This particualar show is pretty good at fairly judging horses based on the breed standards. I'm a QH person so I don't know alot on the rules for showing other breeds. I've surfed and surfed the web but had a hard time finding things. Yesterday I had her (the 12 year old) riding Sierra in a walking horse low port bit (It was my old black horses). She even has her backing now which was a hard one.

    I did read in the rules that for kids 12 and under, they can use a snaffle on "any age horse" which means she can ride western with two hands should she choose to. Although with a western bit the horse will neck rein. I really do appreciate all of the help!

    One more question... for show, is it just a simple braid near the bridle path with a ribbon for walkers? It's what it looks like in the pictures I've found on the web...

    My new instructor shows TWHs, and there's pics of her at a show on the site-- she has the forelock and first bit of hair after the(long) bridle path braided with ribbon.

    Isn't that ribbon only used in certain shows? Like Park? Or am I thinking of Saddlebreds?

    I don't have a clue! I just ordered a book on braiding off amazon not to long ago. It hasn't come in yet but I'm hoping it will explain what braids are appropriate for what types of shows. I just want to make it clear that she is a gaited horse at this show so that she is judged by gaited standards.

    You ought to join trot.org and check out that forum.

    They can help, there is a section for Walkers. And you can order prebraided braids from World Champion. ;)

    Best ever.
